My grandfather maintained the belief which had been passed to him that our family came originally from the Isle of Man. My grandmother was able to trace our family back to Whitesides who came into Philadelphia on a ship from Ireland in the mid to late 1700's, but I can find no certain records of their origins. I am wondering to what extent, if at all, the name Whiteside is associated with the Isle of Man and could my grandfather have been correct in his assertion.
